Jaipur: Newly appointed judge of Rajasthan high court Farzand Ali told media persons that justice is the ultimate goal for him.

Justice Ali who was Additional Advocate General was among the five new judges notified to the Rajasthan high court by the central government on Monday. The four other judges are Sudesh Bansal, Anoop Kumar Dhand;, Vinod Kumar Bharwani, and Madan Gopal Vyas.

Born in Chittorgarh in 1968, Justice Ali was inspired by his father who was an advocate. He told media persons when a victim gets justice, the lawyer representing him or her also gets immense satisfaction. Serving justice would continue to be the ultimate goal for him in his role as an HC judge. After studying law from Neemach, he started the law practice in 1992 and moved to Jodhpur high court in 2006. He was appointed Additional Advocate General in 2019.

On September 1, 2021, the Supreme Court had recommended the above names, in addition to two more names, for elevation as judges to Rajasthan High Court. The collegium also reiterated the recommendation for Ali, who was first recommended in July 2019.

There are 50 posts of judges in the Rajasthan high court. With the new appointments, the HC now has 27 judges. Twenty three posts are still lying vacant.
